Coatesville edges La Salle, earns first ever trip to Hershey

Coatesville completed an unlikely run to Hershey Friday night with a 42-35 win over Philadelphia powerhouse La Salle in the PIAA 4A state semifinals in Downingtown.

The Raiders roared out to a 42-21 lead then held on down the stretch to clinch their first ever berth in the state championship game.

(13-2) Coatesville - just the 9-seed out of District One - will face either Wilson West Lawn or North Allegheny for the title next Saturday at 6pm.
